Yeah, I discovered that. I don't know why anybody would want to pay for stereo in 480i.

Wonder why they don't offer the service since they're broadcasting it anyway.

Park City, UT OTA???

I am not from UT, but have a friend trying to get OTA channels in Park City. Finding confusing info online... Does PC have its own towers off of Quandry Peak that provide the major networks or just the normal towers Southwest of SLC? Is it possible to get the major networks via an antenna in Park City and if so how & where are they coming from?

Thanks for that confirmation TRIP! A few follow up questions since you obviously have some serious knowledge.

Looking at the attached TV Fool it looks like my friend has LOS NW to the Translator towers & is only 2 miles away. Is there anything that needs to be done differently to get signal from the Translator or will it be just as easy as getting a simple indoor antenna for all of the major network channels since he is so close? Also, trying to figure out how to best translate what I am seeing on RabbitEars-how can you tell that their is a Translator in Park City?

Should be as simple as a decent antenna.

I linked you directly to the list of translators in Park City. That's how I know. (Unless I'm not understanding your question properly. If I'm not, please let me know so I can answer it properly.)

Sinclair buys KJZZ; forms triopoly with KUTV, KMYU

Purchase price is $6.5 million. Will most likely lead to end of LMA with KSL.

I get all 4 channels. I'm in Taylorsville. KUTH (ch 32) comes from Lake Mountain, west of Utah Lake, not Farnsworth Peak.

GRIT TV, which is also on 20.3.

I was hoping you'd chime in, Trip. I was going to E-mail you about this if you hadn't by the end of the day tomorrow.

Is your updated info only for those channels that are down in St. George, then? Not any of the LPTV stations in the Salt Lake area?

Is there anyone in Park City who can verify if they are receiving KTVX from Quarry Mountain? I just noticed that it's missing, and all other channels are fine. It would help to have a sanity check before I go trying to debug my antenna and TV.

Hello, everyone, I've been on AVSForum for 14 years, but have just moved from near Charlotte to a neighborhood in Magna near 3500S/7200W.

Here's what I get on a Panasonic 42" plasma TV with a cheap amplified indoor antenna high up on a shelf on the wall (which faces Farnsworth Peak) in the living room of my new house:

2-1 KUTV HD
2-2 KUTV2-2
4-1 KTVX-HD
4-2 Me-TV
4-3 Laff
4-30 KUCW-SD
5-1 KSL-HD
5-2 COZI-TV
5-3 thisTV
9-1 KUEN
9-2 MHZWrld
9-3 FNX
9-91 KUER-FM
10-1 KULX-HD
10-2 KULX-2
10-3 LATV
11-1 KBYU
11-2 BYUtv
11-3 BYUtvi
13-1 KSTU
13-2 ANTTV
13-3 JUSTICE
14-1 KJZZ-DT
14-2 Comet
14-3 TBD
14-4 Charge!
16-1 ---
16-1 ION
16-2 qubo
16-3 IONlife
16-4 Shop
16-5 QVC
16-6 HSN
16-96 Airbox
19-1 KPDRLD1
19-2 TUFFTV
19-3 HSN2
19-4 KPDRLD4
19-5 KPDRLD5
19-6 CRTV
19-7 LIFEHAC
20-1 KTMW
20-2 TELEXIT
20-3 GRIT
20-4 LAFF
20-5 LATV
23-1 KBTU-LD
23-2 KBTU-LD
23-3 KBTU-LD
23-4 KBTU-LD
23-5 KBTU-LD
23-6 KBTU-LD
23-7 KBTU-LD
24-1 KPNZ-DT
30-1 KUCW-HD
30-2 MOVIES
30-3 Grit
30-4 Escape
50-1 KEJT HD


That's pretty impressive for a cheap indoor antenna in a good location, and I could perhaps do better with an outdoor antenna, but money's awful tight right now, so that's a way-down-the-road project for me.

Welcome to Utah!

That about sums it up. Missing, though, are channels 7.1-3, 26.1-6, and 32.1-4. You should be getting 7 (PBS), as it's on the same tower as all of the major Salt Lake channels (except 13 (Fox)). All of the major channels are on the same mountain peak, which is less than 10 miles SW of you. Channel 26 (religious) is on the east side of the valley, and 32 (Hispanic) comes from the west side of Utah lake, which is south in Utah county.

Try it without amplification -- you just might get 7.

For an outdoor antenna, I use one of these: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1.

SLC is now and will be continue to be a UHF-only market. Don't think he needs a U/V combo antenna. If he wants a cheap UHF antenna, there's always the Eagle Aspen knockoff of the DB2. They're usually available for under $20.

Probably so. When I set mine up, ch. 10 was still on 10, I thought that a small, black yagi looked better than a vertical, silver barbeque grill with bowties, and I was going to have 2 antennas pointed 90 degrees apart. These have a relatively narrow beamwidth.

Looks like some major channel changes over the next year and a half in the Salt Lake City area.

No, it's due to the auction/repack which is independent to the ATSC roll-out although the timing will overlap.

Are they just wanting to have everything below 40? Or, are they auctioning off 40 and above?

In 2012 Congress authorized a spectrum auction to help balance the federal budget. Congress felt they could
auction up to 500 mhz of spectrum from different frequencies. They initially authorized the FCC to auction
off 120 mhz of tv spectrum depending on demand from broadband providers and the price they were willing
to spend and what some full powers would take to sell and or move the channels they were on. The auction
went through several phases with the two sides meeting at 84mhz. This is going to eliminate all tv channels
over the next supposed 39 months from UHF channel 38 through 51. All broadcasters will be moved and
repacked in the spectrum from VHF channel 2 through UHF channel 36. Salt Lake City will be the first area
to move, and right now it looks like they will be completely moved by November of 2018. The trickle down
effect of this is that all translators around the state will need to move also. Congress authorized to reimburse
full power stations for the channel moves, but did not authorize any money to reimburse translators and LPTV
operators who must move channels. This in-action by Congress and the FCC will put a tremendous financial
strain on small communities and county entities who are required to move frequencies because of this
un-funded mandate Congress implemented in January of 2012.

ATSC 3.0 will probably take a lot longer to get implemented, and I would not expect to see it in operation
before all the tv stations have to change broadcast channels. ATSC 3.0 is not backwards compatible with our
current ATSC 1.0, so pull out the wallets to purchase a new tv set or converter box. The FCC also said that
ATSC 3.0 is voluntary, so not all broadcasters may choose to change.
